Default sold a car, buyer called and complaned ****** keeps calling now says tranny died

So I recently bought a 95 lumnia (ugh) with the sole intention on reselling it. A friend of mine owned it and it had been sitting since he got his new car a year or so ago. He recently moved and had to get rid of it so I bought it for $150. I jump started it and drove it to another friends house since my driveway is full. I posted it on craigslist for $1000 obo and this guy emailed me 4 times about it the next day so i figured he was pretty interested. Anyway he comes and looks at the car and takes it for a ride and ends up giving me $750 for it (more than i was expecting to get anyhow) Anyway he just called and was complaining about some stuff that is wrong with the car. The brake lights dont work because of a bad turn signal switch (common issue) he knew about that on the test drive. And he said it blew a brake line while he was "testing" the brakes. I told him the car had been sitting when he drove it and to be easy on the brakes. What should I do?

Cliffs:
sold a car on cl buyer knew it had been sitting and had some issues buyer calls afterward complaining.

It's a car that's been sitting, and sold for under a grand. If he doesn't know what that entails then maybe he should buy a new car with a warranty, or at least a brand with a reputation for solid engineering and reliability.

It's a 15+ year old car, "as is" is implied.

Thats what i thought. most private party cars are as is where is and he had plenty of time to look it over. ---- I only had the car for 2 days and I told him exactly what i found wrong in those 2 days and told him it had sat a while. The guy even told me he had to fix the same stuff that was wrong with it on his last one. He has owned 3 the car he came to look at it in was a green 96 lumnia lol

As far as I'm confused, when you buy a used car, its a buyer beware, sold as is purchase. Ask as many questions as possible during the test drive, but once you pay for it, you assume all responsibilities.

You mean concerned? :P

I agree, once you sign the papers and its yours, so are all the problems with it. ---- the dude that bought it, you can't expect things to be in perfect working order when paying that much for a ------- car. Like Rob just said in another thread, "you get what you pay for."

My thoughts.
